Heart Healthy Glazed Sweet Potatoes

For those who like sweet potatoes sweet, this is a great recipe. For all of us (except the person in the family who is not a sweet potato fan), this is a winning recipe. 

l/4 cup water
2 tblsp brown sugar
2 tblsp honey or maple syrup or agave
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 pounds sweet potatoes (4 large) peeled and cut into wedges

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F. 
  2. Lightly coat a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray. 
  3. In a small bowl whisk water, brown sugar, honey/agave/syrup and olive oil until smooth. 
  4. Place a single layer of sweet potatoes in the pan and pour the sauce over them and turning to coat. 
  5. Cover and bake until tender (about 45 min.) 
  6. Turn the sweet potatoes once or twice to coat. 
  7. When tender, remove the cover and continue to bake for about 15 more minutes to set the glaze.


  • You can use yellow sweet potatoes, yams, Okinawan sweet potatoes, or any colored sweet potato. It all is excellent.
